Innovation Platforms & Priority Targets

VBC has a simple, overarching objective that guides its business development activities: Focus on unmet needs and create measurable value for VBC, its partners, and customers.

VBC seeks to license or acquire unique products, businesses, technologies, and/or intellectual property with the potential to deliver that value in each segment of crop production. Within each segment, we are focusing on specific areas where unmet needs align well with our core competencies.

The same approach applies in the area of public health. While insect and disease management in agriculture and forestry address the need to maintain healthy plants, insect management in public health speaks to the need to control insects that vector disease causing agents in humans and animals.
